years ago, bret. >> that's right. this was by far governor romney's best debate. >> steve: ever. >> ever. he was on point and took it to the president and never left him off. >> steve: was that like the president -- worst debate. >> he had moments of you are likeable enough, hillary. this is the president obama comes out if you do what you need to do tie the economy to the president. governor romney never let that up and used $90 billion figure twice and not once. how it was worth 50 years was what regular oil and gas companies would have gotten and used it in the end to say that $90 billion could have been used to hire teachers. >> gretchen: what could be a headline and important with independent voters. he romney ironically talked about being the uniter and chief last night. >> that was very interesting. he cast a much bigger vision than the president did. >> steve: sounds like you would give mitt romney an a? >> absolutely. >> steve: what about the president. >> a c, when you don't do your homework you deserve a worse grade. it was obvious he had not prepared. >> steve: thank you for
with of the things about the president last night is for all of the many points that mitt romney had right up here, and he was able to effectively communicate them, the president had nothing. >> yeah. throw me a left one, jim, hurry up. it was great. and i thought mitt romney did a fabulous job of very methodically -- methodically dissecting barak obama. there was one case, it might have been during that exchange where he wandered from talking about the corporate jets, to medicaid, to pulling out some really irrelevant acin the case dote and romney was able to come back a, b, c, d, e, respond to each and every one of these points. and he just didn't let obama get away with the same kind of talking points and recycling that so many of the left dog media journalists have over the course of this campaign. >> gretchen: i think that's the headline of the night actually because people were calling this race over and people were saying that these debates might not matter. i totally disagreed with that, by the way. but to me, it was this opportunity for the american public to see both candidates on the sa
problem, lots of big problems for mitt romney right now, but this 47% thing. if you're barack obama, as he has been doing these attack ads the last few days, he will hammer mitt romney over the head throughout this debate about 47%. if he doesn't, he's mad. because it's an incredibly powerful hammer to use, because whichever way you try and spin that, it was a disaster. he called half of the country a bunch of scrounging victims. what does mitt romney do if barack obama does that? >> mitt romney has said a couple things since, piers. the first thing he said was that was me, not my campaign. he actually took responsibility which i appreciate when a grown man says i'm sorry, i made a mistake. number two, number two, his campaign is all about 100% of america and here's what he meant. he said it was inelegantly stated but i agree, not just the president will take him to task on that but i think the debate questioners will ask him. but romney should look at that as an opportunity not to be defensive again but to explain precisely what he meant. the other thing that he really should do here is i
into this debate very realistic that mitt romney is likely to win, if he plays his cards right. if he performs and fills in those details and has that conversation with the american people instead of having, you know, a punching match and just leveling insults at the president like he's done over the past two years, if he fills in his policy details, talks in specifics about his plans for the future, he could win this debate. but you know what, the president is treating these debates the same way we treated the conventions. that it's not about just that ght. it's about an ongoing conversation with the american people. it's not just about the people in the room or the people, no offense to cnn, in the cnn booth. it's about the people sitting at home and the type of conversation that we want to have with them over time. it's a continuation of that conversation about where the president wants to take this country and his specific plans to move us forward. >> talking of conversations, he chose to appear on "the view" in the last week rather than talk to world leaders here in new york. any regrets
's an important moment. >> talk about that. you know, mitt romney got a big laugh. he seemed genuine. >> right. i think i talk toud about this the other day. mike deaver, the media adviser to ronald reagan, he once said these television events -- and make no mistake a debate is a television event -- 85% visual, 10% how you sound and 5% of what you actually say. leading up to the importance of, as you've been talking about, likability. i'm taken aback by how much more stiff president obama was than mitt romney. you played moments like that and throughout the debate, mitt romney seemed calm, in command of the facts, comfortable, made eye contact with the president. the president simply just looked uncomfortabl uncomfortable. >> and, roland, one of the boston papers had a headline that it was snore more years for obama. i mean, the reviews of his performance are harsh. >> absolutely. i think that it was lackluster, to some degree. i will disagree with will cain when he said mitt romney had a command of the facts. he had a command of what mitt thought actually were facts. you look at the fact checker
'll see what she does. >> yes. right. >> on the likability issue, some are saying mitt romney leveled the playing field last night, he became likable, as likable as president obama. is that right? >> well, you know, i don't know. i don't know about that. i don't think his problem has been the question of likability. i think it's been related but different, empathy. whether he understands, cares about the problems, economic strains that middle class families are experiencing. he did make progress on that front. in particular, arguing that he had a plan. i thought the debate exposed what i believe has been the major blank spot, the hole in president obama's campaign agenda. he has given us very little sense of what he would do with a second term if the public gives him another four years. he was really almost silent on that question last night and only had energy, i thought, when he was attacking romney in the middle section of the debate over his budget, medicare and tax plans. other than that, i don't think people would come away with much of an idea of what president obama would give
'm at a point now where, all right, we are buying because of romney's strength today. that was the imptous today, but there's a lot of risk to the upside moving beyond q3 after the earning season. we are just starting, by the way, with earning season starting next week. neil: i would guess, lori, you and melissa talk about the numbers starting to reverse, and that would be disruptive, and that normally is a harbor of not so fun things to come. >> the bar is low. not huge comparisons from this quarter to last year. again, the economy's been slow, and earnings held up, but they are nowhere near -- neil: what's that tell you? the bar is so low and people don't sink as much? >> absolutely. it's the new normal. again, we talk about this all the time. this is interesting example. see, target, reported a 2% sales increase the last month, it is an increase, not a decline. because of uncertainty they have, they are not willing to make big bets, and they said we're not going to report on a monthly basis because it's just -- there's too much going on. neil: saying that, but they telegraph it's too embarras
in a choice for the voters between the romney obama agenda. >> gregg: all right. carl cameron, thanks very much. >> president obama arriving in las vegas moments ago. we'll have a live report a bit later in the newscast. >> heather: meantime, controversy growing over the deadly attack in libya. into new calls investigation in assault that killed chris steens and three other americans. more questions are being raised over the obama administration's official version of what happened. top lawmakers are demanding answers. steve centanni is live in washington with more on this. >> reporter: one is bob corker a member of the foreign relations committee saying the benghazi incident is more bizarre every day. he wrote a letter to the director of national intelligence. it says 18 days ago the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. what has changed in libya such a short time that our f.b.i. agents, most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? meantime, republicans kept up the drum beat on the administration's response and the president's foreign polic
of the great political debates of our time and i think that mitt romney was right to join it with president obama. i think president obama's policies and his political vision are fundamentally that of french democrats, rather like francois hollande. i think mitt romney's are a traditional conservative republican. i thought during the debate he sounded actually, he echoed themes that you would associate with dwight eisenhower. so i think this is a great debate to be joined politically. i think that romney is raising real risk but there are people on the left who would like to see a stronger centralized government, not just as a safety net but all of these elements and you can see what the problems are. as margaret thatcher once said, the problem with socialism that sooner or later you run out of other people's money. melissa: right. absolutely. professor, thanks for coming on. have a great weekend. >> you too. melissa: so here's the question of the day, will president obama get a bump in the polls next week because of today's jobs report? we want to hear what you think. like us on facebook a
. >> chris: suppose that the doubters are right and president romney takes office and the math doesn't add up. >> i have run them in congress and they do. >> chris: let's assume it doesn't. the question is what is most important to romney? kale bacscale back in the 20% r the wealthy or scale back and say we have to raise taxes for the middle class? the question is what is most important to him in the tax reform plan? >> keeping tax rates down by lowering tax rates people keep more of the next dollar that they earn. that matters. sin cent ives and progrowth policy and creates 7 million jobs. >> chris: that is more important. >> more important than anything. and it is not what deductions are in the tax code but who gets them and don't forget that the higher income people have a disproportionate amount of the loopholes that they use. when you close a tax write-off or tax shelter for a higher income person more of their income is subject to taxation so you can lower tax rates. where we go is by denying the deductions and loopholes to higher income people which allows us is to lower tax rates for
'm not talking about that. i'm talking about right now. governor romney put him on his record, and that was his signature achievement. >> i promise you, what they will do, they're going to fire ever nuclear bomb they have. lou: had dirty. is that what you're saying? >> at the end of the day, the fact that the man stood on that stage and look presidential, performed at a high level, kept telling people is the economy. at a solution to fix it. what did they could agree with all the details are not is irrelevant. he came off as presidential. that is the test. 55 million people the watch that are open-minded, a basically benefited immensely 56 were talking about over 60 million people watching that debate. your tuchman 67 percent thought he won according to the cnn poll which is not exactly a ride -- >> that is the consensus. a lot of it was driven by the kind of twitter celebrity. and leftwingers for the most part who were saying they wanted obama to go at bain, the 47% issue, get dirty. as their advice to him. i will say this to you on the economy. consumer confidence right now is moving upward.
think that romney was right this morning when he went in, he said look, there are two different viewpoints here. >> jennifer, you have to hold back. i can see you racing to get in there. it's not like last night. you can just pile in. >> truly, the $716 billion as you know was the same $716 billion in savings that paul ryan put into his budget, and which all of those republicans voted for. why? because it's about smart way of managing medicare. it is not taking away a single benefit. it is not cutting off a single beneficiary. it's asking the providers to manage their care better. and that was a smart thing to do. that's why paul ryan supported it, and every fact checker, not just cnn, but every fact checker that has looked at this has said it is a lie, a pants-on-fire lie. >> newt gingrich, a pants-on-fire lie. >> this is baloney. what they're saying is you can take $716 billion out of a program magically but you won't have taken $716 billion out of the program. now, that is simply a denial of how the real world works. there's a reason virtually every doctor is opposed to obama
you think is the real state of the economy right now and what mitt romney has in his position tonight? >>guest: the most important thing is mitt romney needs to show that the president and his previous budget that he has proposed with trillions of dollars in new taxes only does one thing: it grows the debt. it does not do anything if the deficit we have had. you give the bigger growth to the federal government. we have to have policies that provide the certainty to the private sector, the policies that enable them to grow. again, this is not saying we don't need any regulation but we need to have smart regulations. in california dairy year 2011, 71,000 pages of new regulations were institutessed. the people in the coal industry, when you look at what has happened to them when we could not get cap and trade moved through they are getting decimated. we have to have a vision like ronald reagan said, talking about a new dawn for this american economy. >>neil: congressman, you are among those who were brought in, in the republican avalanche that brought in 83 republicans and that tipped th
and renewed enthusiasm in terms of investing? >> that's right. the romney campaign has been tweeting all day long about how much money they raised. donations were coming in every couple of seconds i think is what the romney campaign calculated because of the performance that mitt romney put in last night, and keep in mind, you were talking about the adjustments, jessica was talking about the adjustments the president's going to make. i get the sense from talking to several folks inside the romney campaign, and most notably the debate sparring partner himself, rob portman, that they are going to be sticking to this idea, this approach of a tough debate prep, intense debate prep. i think we will be seeing mitt romney going back behind closed doors with rob portman on several occasions over the coming days to make sure he is just as sharp for the next debate. i talked to portman about this last night. he's sort of the debate whisperer now. he said oh, no, his work is not finished until these debates are wrapped up. >> i like that. debate whisperer. fascinating to be a fly on the wall in both de
back. >>> look at mitt romney's stunning 180 on this. >> all right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it. it's an entitlement. and the government should give it to them. and they will vote for this president no matter what. >> last night, two and a half weeks after that tape surfaced, government romney went on fox news where he was asked how he would have answered if the tape had come up in wednesday's debate. here's part of his answer. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i said something that's just completely wrong. >> he said "completely wrong." that's completely weird namely because the night the tape aired, mr. romney rushed to a microphone to defend his 47% remarks. he kept defending them and hounded supporters for days after that. >> it's no
mitt romney a apology. he was right. waited 15 hours, the concerns that silence and weak statement out of cairo was inappropriate response. he was right. the obama administration waited 15 hours as the administration developed. their first reaction was to go after mitt romney. the mead yu followed that and we're finding mitt romney was right. this administration had a very weak reaction to a growing threat and people need to wonder what would have happened if the president came out an condemned this hours as it was happening before the ambassador was killed. gregg: rick, thank you very much. appreciate it. jenna: more on that story throughout the day for sure. meantime a powerful typhoon toppling trees and power lines and proving deadly. where this storm is hitting, we have that just ahead. >>> plus independent voters, they were key to putting president obama in the white house but could independents be turning the other direction, more towards governor romney? a debate, fair and balanced ahead. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about that 401(k) you picked up back in the '80s. tdd#: 1-8
bait right after this. p martha: governor romney strongly defending his tax plan after repeated claims from president obama that it would hurt middle class americans. here is an exchange from last night. watch. >> under the president's policies middle income americans have been buried, they have been crushed. >> governor romney's policies call for an $8hill tax cut in addition to additional spending for our military. the average person making $3 million is getting a $250,000 tax break while middle class families are burdened further. that's not what i believe is a recipe for economic growth. >> virtually everything he just said about my tax plan is inaccurate. if the tax plan he described is a tax plain would be asked to support would say absolutely not. i will reduce the share to high income individuals. i have got five boys. i'm used to someone saying things that aren't ultimately true but keep on repeating it hoping i will believe it. but that is not the case. i will not raise tax on middle income families. i'll lower taxes on middle income families. martha: by our count president o
the country right now, do you that damages mitt romney? it's getting a lot of play nationwide. it really is. you can't take that away. do you think that's damaging? >> people are entitled to their opinion. this is a free country. it's free speech. i personally accept the numbers as they are. we need to be talking about the issues. the facts, there are still over 20 million people out of work. gas has doubled under this president. >> okay. scott, let's move on to you. florida's unemployment rate stands at 8.8%, one point higher than the national average that came out yesterday. florida also tops the list of states. and some type of foreclosure process, 11%. has president obama done enough to bring back florida's economy? >> well, what we're seeing here in florida is that people do feel better. they feel like we are in a recovery. things are on the move. we are moving forward. and that's really the great thing. what people are asking themselves is that four years ago in september of 2008, this country lost over 150,000 jobs. in september of 2012, we gained 114,000 jobs. that's the great news.
was right. >>trace: the romney campaign is portraying the race as a very stark choice between the two candidates. >>reporter: highlight the differences. they got help from moderator jim lehrer who said several times we are very clear that there are very stark differences between the two of you. governor romney tried to make this a referendum on obama but that was not going anywhere so the big choice highlighting on the different issues from taxes to spending and the deficit. >> only in washington would you count $4 trillion of reduction when, in fact, the plan called for adding $1 trillion of debtry one of the next fur years. i think that is wrong. we should instead take a course represented by free democrat to get america to cap our funding, cut our spending and get us on track to a balanced budget. >>reporter: the obama campaign licking their wounds and said governor romney has a vigorous performance that was devoid of honesty. the romney campaign firing back against that saying that the obama campaign has been engaging inning in but false statements. trace, the war of words continu
about everyone, from right to left, says that romney won the debate. i gave you a full "a" and i give the president a "c" minus. there was a giant difference between their performance. everyone who was fair was impressed with how romney handled that from going to end. obama was stunned by how well romney was performing. he seemed almost to take a step back and tune out. >>neil: do you think he came in to it is on the clock, the president, to your point he didn't expect this, and he saw little risk in taking on mitt romney and even if romney did well it would not move the needle were and maybe that is what the folks are hoping today. will that be the case? >> they may be hoping that but as word gets out and as the coverage continues of the debate, more people would didn't watch the debate will hear about romney's performance. if they are not if romney or they are undecided they will be intrigued that he took on the president and did as well as they have now heard that he did or will hear they did. the criticism being made and you heard a couple of the obama spokesman making it, that ro
four years ago. so this is a pretty commonplace thing to do. >> all right, matt visor from "the boston globe" and erin mcpike from real clear politics, thank you both. >> thank you. >>> coming up, new polls out today show mitt romney with a double-digit deficit in his running mate's home state. we will give you the latest spread on that. >>> but first, which president obama is preparing to emerge at the next debate? we'll talk to his campaign's vice chairwoman, next. this is msnbc. ♪ most paints have color that sits on the surface. but nothing beats benjamin moore's color lock technology that locks color right in, no matter how often you wash it. color lock technology. exclusively from your benjamin moore retailer. find your perfect color with a buy one, get one pint offer. visit >>> well, mitt romney is not backing off of his attacks of president obama's economic policies, no matter what the latest jobs report says. he told a florida crowd last night that the president is out of ideas and says wednesday's debate proved that. >> he got a chance to explain his
when president obama and governor romney go head to head a little more than 48 hours from right now. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. a new survey of likely voters finds that almost one in five say that they can still be swayed to vote for either candidate here. and some of those wavering voters say they are waiting for these debates to help them decide. the headline here according to bloomberg, about 18% of the electorate is, quote, persuadable, and that is a big number considering that early voting has already begun. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on so the campaigns have got to see that, in particular the romney camp, as good news, chris, since he is shown as trail anything a lot of these swing state polls as well. >> well, certainly it's not good news if you're president obama. if that's true, if you really have 18% persuadable voters, this comes after fife months -- five months of the most stained, negative attack, most personal barrage against a candidate by an incumbent president that we've ev
they favored romney 58% to obama 34. they tend to lean right, these military voters, but they don't all vote. and you say in this year is the worst it has been in terms of the voting assistance being provided which is really too bad. eric, thank you. >> thank you. megyn: well, a top house republican now putting a hold on $450 million of money meant for the people of egypt, this after our embassy came in -- under attack in cairo. what, if anything, egypt can do to repair its standing with the united states and whether we're really likely to withhold that aid. >>> last week we introduced you to in the young woman, she was voted to her homecoming court and then found out it was a prank. in three minutes, what happened when she showed up at school this past friday night. but phillips' caplets don't. they have magnesium. for effective relief of occasional constipation. thanks. [ phillips' lady ] live the regular life. phillips'. megyn: an update, now, to a story we told you about last week. 16-year-old whitney crop of michigan was nominated to her high school's homecoming court as a prank, a joke
. lou: no, you guys said that is what you were saying. >> right now the romney people have been bludgeoned by lots of polls that show their men behind. they want to be reassured that their candid can go toe to toe with barack obama. there is a problem. there is an enthusiasm problem. i'm in this game. we have three debates. i'm back. lou: chinese hackers. the white house military office. accessing the codes to the nuclear-weapons. this country. and there is no public response. there is no statement. there is nothing. what is happening here? >> i guess we are giving our bankers access to everything. lou: due diligence. >> this isutrageous to me. the white house military office, the second floor of the string and the white house and is not just the military code, the transportation, marine one mokhmer force one, military personnel. there is no public comment. this is a very significant breach of national security and proprietary information. lou: estimated 250. believe the number is 250,000 attacks the day on systems of the as this government. this is not unexpected that they woul
right here. >> after dropping this on the u.n. yesterday, he talks to obama and romney today. what israel's line in the sand would mean for all of us.
of it is still benefits to the president right now and hurts the romney narrative i think. jenna: let me ask you this. taking out some of the partisan side of all of this for voters, we're officially in the crazy period, right, joe? >> right. jenna: this will get crazy over next couple weeks. as seasoned campaigner, someone who has been through the elections what tips can you give us as voters out there to navigate what we're hearing and what we're going to continue to hear over the next couple weeks to election day? >> people have to research the facts themselves. look at the charts, both sides will call each other liars and twist the facts and make the economic numbers look the way they want to look. if you're undecided, you really got to take time and look, you know, go online, or you know, pay attention to what is happening. and not listen to what the rhetoric on both sides is going to be i think. jenna: sounds like good advice, joe. appreciate it as always. look forward to having you back. thank you. >> thanks, jenna, more new information now on those millions of americans still looking for
four years. >> the people having a hard time right now are middle income americans. under the president's policies, middle income americans have been buried. they're being crushed. >> romney was loose and managed to all but call the president an immature fibber without being rude. >> governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 trillion tax cut. on top of the extension to the bush tax cuts. >> i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. i don't have a tax cut. of a scale that you're talking about. i will not reduce the share paid by high income individuals. i know that you and your running mate keep saying that and i know it's a popular thing to say with a lot of people burks it's just not the case. look, i got five boys, i'm used to people saying something that's not always true. >> health care, romney was on offense, touting what he passed in massachusetts as an example of a bipartisan compromise and a model for the whole country at the state level. >> we've seen this model work really well. in massachusetts because governor romney did a good thing, working with democrats in the sta
.z., right? >> no, absolutely not. and the thing is, is that mitt romney really seems to fungd well when he's coming from behind. so if there's anything that would give him any hope it's that when he seems to be coming from someone else has momentum, he can take that momentum, he seems to perform much better than has a front-runner. if he has any hope going in knowing expectations are extremely low for him, if he's able to take that and be aggressive and attack president obama, because let's face it the president is still extremely fuller inable. the only reason why romney isn't winning is because romney's been an absolute idiot the past two to three weeks. so if he can correct that by being aggressive, perhaps he can swing the momentum back to his favor. >> we like to use the word missteps. anna, let me give you the final word. president obama is vulnerable. he's been called a wonderful orator, that he mesmerizes audiences when he speaks, but he is vulnerable. where does romney have to strike him? >> look, i think romney needs to do what he did in the last two debates of the primary in flo
spokesman. romney has said the president's policies right-hand turn working and the 8% was an indication of that. what's the response now? >> well, i think clearly the number of americans who are still looking for work, the people -- the work force participation rate is still far, far too high, so i don't think that 7.8% unemployment is something anybody, even the democrats, are cheering about. so i think that the president still clearly has a case to make for why another four years are going to be better under his leadership. >> the democrats would say, as they've said on our air this morning, that it is heading in the right direction at least. but normally a jobs number comes and goes, but yesterday certainly quite a bit of controversy over this latest number. some republicans, including former ge ceo jack welch saying that the number may not be kw t correct. welch tweeted this. unbelievable jobs numbers. the chicago guys will do nothing. can't debate so change numbers. does the romney camp share that position? >> well, i think the point is it's one month of unemployment numbers. we'l
the push by romney to end the funding? >> for big bird? >> well, for pbs, sure. >> right. well, he said he was a fan of big bird, but i think he used that as an example of a federally funded organization that he believes doesn't need that taxpayer money. it certainly does well with its own private funding drives. i mean, we're forever seeing pbs funding drives, let's face it. so governor romney was just simply illustrating a point that he would be willing to cut even popular things like big bird because he doesn't see that it's a federal responsibility. >> mitt romney now says that he was wrong about that 47% comment as well. listen to this. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. >> president obama, surprising a lot of people by not even bringing that up in the debate. but amy, i'm going to go to you first on this one. does this end the conversation about the 47%? >> well, interestingly enough, as
would you have for mitt romney, given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think you know the debates are very important. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's gonna double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties because we now know the overwhelming number of those people work and have children. the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is because the median income is as low as 1995. until the current election season, republicans and democrats supported both the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit. i doubled the earned income tax credit. it was signed under the tax credit. reagan started it. we started it with a strong support of republicans in congress. president bush dealt with that, then president obama increased the earned income tax credit for families with more than three children. this is a rejection of basically more than three decades of bipartisan policy to support working families. it's not a bunch of free loaders. there's only 4% of the total population who don't pay federal income tax and don't work and may not be
romney is going to put y'all back in chains. >> brian: right. >> martha: southern accent that day, too. >> steve: he did. >> brian: the other thing is the president had to get prepared for the debate. paul ryan and joe biden had to carry their weight. it didn't really work too well. >> steve: you know how mitt romney prepared yesterday out in denver for the debate. he had the burrito bowl at chipotle. >> brian: right. >> steve: he said he usually goes with a burrito, but yesterday. >> martha: burrito bowl. let's get a look at some headlines this morning. there are concerns today that the obama administration may be looking to move some of the gitmo detainees to american soil. the federal government plans to buy the thompson correctional center in illinois. at one point this prison was considered for housing gitmo detainees and there was a huge controversy based around that. many lawmakers outraged saying it would open the door for ultimately carrying out a gitmo transfer. house speaker john boehner said this, the unilateral decision to purchase the thompson prison, even though congress
't think by much, because president obama right now is in a very strong position. >> what do you think mitt romney needs to do? >> oh, i think mitt romney needs to talk about failure and success. mitt romney may not be the perfect candidate, but this president doesn't have much in the way of accomplishments, especially when it comes to this economy. he has to say look, barack obama, you may have succeeded as a politician but you haven't succeeded as a president. i know what it takes to succeed in life, i've done it a lot in business creating growth and jobs. let's talk about that. >> it does seem in the last couple days his campaign has been kind of trying to make him seem like a warmer guy. i mean, that photo -- >> hes loosened his tie, taken it off. he's laughed a little more. the job for mitt romney clearly is to get in the ring, get in the arena and to show that he can handle these tough issues. he hasn't been specific. he has to avoid talking about taxes, has to avoid talking about the 47%. he has to play offense. and president obama has to make sure that he doesn't play preventive def
